Dear Prof. Dr. Henry P. Stapp:

First, there is now an overview of your work to which
I just added my March 3, 2020 email to you:

I’ll continue adding to it.  It is indexed from here:
It involves many of the FQXi people.

My earlier encounter with your work goes back to this 1979 listing:
You’re still standing with Glashow, Weinberg and Gerald Holton!
That was for an MIT conference:

Within our listing of recent work, you’re standing with
Gerard Holton, EO Wilson, and Anthony Zichichi.

In our model, I propose that consciousness is on the grid,
prior to waves/particles, but still physical, yet beyond measurement.
1. There are 202 notations from Planck Time to the Age of the Universe.
2. Particles and waves emerge between the 64th and 67th notations.
3. Time is measurable (attoseconds) within the 84th notation.
4. A second emerges between Notation-143 and Notation-144.
5. My proposal is that Systems emerge between notations 50 and 60
and, yes, the Mind is one of those systems. I still have a very long way
to go within this particular part of our exploration.

By the way, references to my FQXi article:

Dear Prof. Dr. Henry P. Stapp:

Back in the summer of 1979, I developed a display project at MIT
and your Mindful Universe and a special summary of your work was part
of the project.

Why it has taken over 40 years to write again,
I don’t know. Life is surely so fleeting.

More recently (2011), working with some high school kids
within their geometry classes, we chased tetrahedrons and
octahedrons down into the Planck scale and then out to the age of the universe in just 202 notations (or doublings).

To develop that framework for a consistent quantum theory
perhaps we should look back to Planck’s 1899 work where
his Planck Length calculation divided by his Planck Time
calculation is within .1% of the speed of light in a vacuum.

A base-2 chart of his numbers I believe is the consistent
framework that we need to break the logjam.

Idiosyncratic, of course. Silly? Maybe not.

Your thoughts? Thank you.

Most sincerely,
Bruce E. Camber
